I am a Biomedical Engineering student at the Polytechnic School of Catalonia (UPC) who already finished her Bachelor in the Politecnico di Torino by doing the thesis about Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs).
Although all aspects of engineering intrigue me, I am particularly interested in the medical application of this discipline. I think that applying engineering techniques to the human body is a fascinating, absorbing and rewarding with many potential benefits for health care. I quickly realized that I would like to have a positive impact on health care, whilst retaining a focus on engineering. That’s the main reason why four years ago I decided to start this career.
My studies combined with my collaboration at the Wadsworth Center (Albany, NY9, the Biomedical Engineering Research Centre (CREB), which belongs to the Technology and Innovation Center (CIT – UPC), and the Biomedical Research Area in Ficosa’s I+D Department, have given me a wide experience in this area and highly motivated me to continue with I+D for sure.
Traveling to Cuba, Norway, Great Britain, Scotland, Netherlands, France, Italy, Tunis and living in Barcelona, Albany and Torino have benefited me by gaining knowledge about different traditions, an insight into diverse cultures and languages. This granted me the ability to adapt to different environments easily and comfortably, which would explain my enthusiasm for meeting new people.
